Madras War Cemetery - Review

Cemeteries can be a beautiful place to visit and the Madras War Cemetery proves that just right. This is the place where several icons and legends rest in peace. It was created for the purpose of receiving Second World War graves from many civil and cantonment cemeteries across the eastern and southern parts of India where the graves’ permanent maintenance was not possible. This Chennai in attraction is an establishment of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). An oasis of peace and heroism awaits your visit!

Madras War Cemetery, Chennai Reviews

  • This place is of great importance as it contains the cemeteries of warriors who laid their precious life during world War 2. It holds close to 850 burials. The view provided by this place is so good that it serves as a photoshoot place. Please enquire the security people before you take pictures so that you will not have any hassle while taking pictures. The exact location of this place is nandambakkam which is close to the DLF IT park and Chennai Airport.

  • Most Solumn Place in honour of Brave Brothers who laid down their lives in World War I and II. The Cemetery and Memorial are maintained with utmost neatness. Place is Clean, Calm and Solumn Atmosphere.

  • To be honest not much to look if you are expecting a garden walk. But yes, if you are into history and stuff you get to look at the graveyards of the martyrs with their names on the stones. The area is quite clean and well managed.

  • It's a beautiful place today spend time here enjoy lot.. Awesome place for photo shoot

  • We went there when the place was flooded. It was a unique experience, although the guards were not very keen on letting us take pics. The place is breathtaking to view and something different from what we see in and around chennai.
